Microneedling is an advanced treatment designed for revitalizing and renewing the skin naturally. It offers a more natural and gentler approach for looking youthful as opposed to other skin resurfacing forms. Microneedling promotes the elastin and collagen production of the skin for improving the skin’s healing ability. It also helps in rejuvenating the skin from within.
Microneedling can be effectively and safely used for mitigating the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and other imperfections of the skin. The procedure enhances the efficiency of topical skin revitalizing products to provide a well-nourished and healthier skin.
Envy Aesthetic Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marco Gonzalez, provides microneedling procedure for the reduction of facial wrinkles and fine lines to patients in El Paso, TX, and surrounding communities.

Treatment Plan and Results of Microneedling
There is a certain degree of skin thickening involved in microneedling. This mitigates the appearance of wrinkles, scars, sun spots, and melasma. The treatment provider may need to perform a series of 3 to 6 microneedling treatments for achieving optimal results.
Each treatment session is spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart. The patient will experience firmer, lifted, and naturally rejuvenated skin in the targeted treatment areas. The treatment can also reduce or remove skin imperfections in the form of fine lines, wrinkles, melasma, scars, enlarged pores, and sun spots.
Involves Minimal Discomfort
This is a swift procedure that doesn’t involve any downtime. You may experience minimal discomfort during the treatment. Your skin may feel warm, rough, and tight, or appear reddish in the initial 3 to 7 days after the procedure.
A topical hydrating gel is usually applied by the treatment provider about an hour before the procedure for ensuring maximum comfort. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Marco Gonzalez of the Envy Aesthetic Center receives patients from El Paso, TX, and nearby areas for microneedling to reduce facial wrinkles and fine lines.
